New Solera Owner
We got our 2014 Solera 24 RS in late August and have had two great trips throughout Colorado. Love the Solera, but we have some issues which we are hoping the dealer will correct next week under warranty.
I tried to winterize the RV yesterday using the owner's manual and something did not work. I did correctly: remove water filter, switch water heater by-pass, drain all fresh water, hot water heater, and black/grey water tanks. However, the manual makes no reference to using the winterize switch with pump hose inserted directly into bottle of pink antifreeze. (the switch is in left side storage area near pump and filter and has normal or winterize as switch options).
Following owners manual directions, I poured 4 bottles of antifreeze directly into fresh water tank then turned on pump thinking antifreeze should flow through all faucets, toilet, etc. No pink liquid ever came through faucets even after leaving pump on for quite some time. I will now drain the 4 gallons of antifreeze from fresh water tank and try method with pump hose inserted directly into antifreeze bottle.
My questiona are: why didn't the 4 gallons of antifreeze I dumped directly into into fresh water tank ever get pumped into pipes, faucets, etc as the Owners Manual stated it would, And, why doesn't owners manual explain use of pump hose directly into bottles of antifreeze and switching from "normal" to "winterize"??
thanks to all.
